Present to my girlfriend!

Hello,

well ... I need help here
The thing is am getting a present for my girl friend celebrating being together for 2 years .. and beside the present I thought I'd put a personal touch by "assembling" a DVD with some of our best songs that we like. Now the songs are ready but I don't want to burn it on a classic DVD or CD .. is there a way to maybe print custom graphics on a CD/DVD?? Does a shop exist that does that stuff here in Basel??

Thanks for pointing me out to this .. cool technology

Its going to be a one time thing! So I would prefer to do it once at a store or something even if its like 15 to 20% of the cost of the hardware

But thats a good alternative!

Re: Present to my girlfriend!

Laptops with this function are actually fairly common--ask around to a few buddies, most people have it and don't even know it!

Re: Present to my girlfriend!

That's sweet and personal.
It's not that hard to do it yourself, but if you prefer someone else to do it for you, a quick google search gave me this: http://www.cdquick.ch/

Re: Present to my girlfriend!

That is a great idea and easy enough to do.
If you are interested in another pretty neat idea then making your own book with ifolor (www.ifolor.ch), or the likes, is a good bet at a reasonable price.
